2 January (Part 1) - The long and the short of it

Wilton Road Wilton RoadAccording to what the lady from Greenwich said at a Traders’ meeting last October, today was when the regeneration of Wilton Road, Abbey Wood was due to start.

At lunchtime there was nothing to see but both Greenwich and Bexley Councils have recently installed new LED equipped lamp posts.

On the Greenwich side the columns look rather nice hanging over the footpath and are entirely in keeping with the village atmosphere they are trying to create.

Across the road in Bexley new columns more appropriate to the A2 than a village have been installed. They tower over every nearby building and will illuminate living accommodation on both sides of the road.

Once again, Bexley Council appears to be entirely clueless when it comes to road and public realm design.
